MAKING YOUR SKIN LOOK YOUNGER.

  

                                                          Should you use a toner?

Toners are meant to remove all remaining traces of oil, makeup and dirt, but a good cleanser should do this. It's really up to you. If you like the way your skin feels with a toner. Buy it,use it and enjoy it.

                                                             How about a Moisturizer?

A basic law of beauty is that, everyone no matter her skin type should moisturize. Even if your skin is oily,it will benefit from moisturizers.(The only exception is those with severe acne). Why? Moisturizers seal moisture into skin. So how much should you moisturize? Your skin will tell you. When your skin is tight, it's crying out for moisture. Be careful not to over-moisturize because this can clog your pores.




MAKING YOUR SKIN LOOK YOUNGER!

Are eye creams necessary?
Well,maybe. The skin around the eye contains no fatty tissue and is therefore very thin and prone to wrinkles. Special eye creams are formulated to thicken this area. Beauty experts claim your daily lotion works around the eyes just as well.

FOR THE LOVE OF CHRISTINE!!

So, having listened to Christines brief for the look we were to recreate on her wedding morning, i was excited to be doing something different from the norm. Earlier in the week i had given her my smoothing serum and facial wash to help reduce the redness of her sensitive skin. Im quite happy to mention its working so im on to a good thing!!
Christines friends are a boisterous bunch, having met quite a number of them over and over again at each others weddings as bridesmaids. The Hotel Suite was packed as my team and i arrived  before the environmental sanitation began. Still sleepy i proceeded to sit in one corner of the room and read my LOOK magazine but the gist kept changing and i couldnt help but laugh out loud at some of their conversations..Then Joke Saro casually asks "so christine what makeup look are we to have? Can we wear Red? NOOOOOOO!!! Christine says. NOBODY is wearing any red lipstick. Find something else to use. Joke looks at me and says "Anh Anh Banke!! What can we use then? I asked and they replied their dresses were red and silver, wearing red shoes, indeed the red lipstick may have been an overkill (or not!!). So i suggested a peach ,mauve and someone mentioned MAC Ladydanger. That sounded good too. Now for someone like Joke who is hooked on Red (she and Tinuke@BMPRO) do a good red lip, all the time!
Red Lipstick is indeed here to stay for now and once youre hooked its hard to stop especially once uve found the perfect shade.
Ify whilst doing her makeup kept repeating to us and herself "Christine so no red Lipstick ehn??" Ohhh God! to which there was a resounding "No REDDDDDD!" it was hilarious... I concluded that They all loved Christine and would do anything to make her happy including dumping their much loved, Sure-to-make-you-Sexy- RUBY WOO .
In fact they loved her so much they all wanted to look Hott on her train and this included getting their personal makeup artists to dole them up.......This also caused another hilarious tirade which i will bring to you probably when Joke gets hitched...loll. ''wink''
With  Christines hair done  by the BMPRO Hair stylist (and me) it was time  to start her makeup....
I started the eyes, using a pale shade, next thing she says to me " Banke i want bold smokey eyes( Im like "Smokey wo!!" -In my mind though) I said to her "No Problem. Now this is someone who had drummed it into my ears that she wanted the pin up look. (Heavy liner, Red lips and lots of lashes) Just because Joke and Tinuke were smoking themselves up and doing it nicely she wanted to change our plans!!
With her skin smoother and brighter i didnt have to spend too much time concealing and MAC STUDIO MIST FOUNDATION was a perfect match.  Her Lips were MAC Ruby woo set with a mattifying cream base. BMPRO Pumpkin blusher gave warmth to her face.
















In all it was a fun morning, I took my photos, satisfied with the way things turned out. Christine was happy, so was Joke and Obi (as Tinuke finished their makeup) We also adjusted Ngozis makeup, and off they went to a photo session with Duduguy and eventually to Church.....

Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface
This is a step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine. But trust me, if you start properly exfoliating your skin, you will notice an almost immediate difference. 


There are several ways to exfoliate skin: 

Scrubs (microdermabrasion)
Scrubs work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells that tend to dull your complexion. We find exfoliating skin once a week with a microdermabrasion kit keeps your skin glowing all year-round. Make sure you use a gentle scrub with tiny grains. Big grains in cheap scrubs can tear skin and cause more harm than good.

Chemical Peel
In the hour it takes to get a chemical peel, you can take off five years from your face. If you can't afford the price tag and the time for a monthly peel,then try some over-the-counter peels that work over the course of a month.

Retinoids
(such as Retin-A or the more moisturizing Renova) also work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells while also generating collagen in the skin. Collagen is the skin's structural fiber. As we get older,this collagen it breaks down, thereby creating lines and large pores. Retinoids are considered to be a miracle skin saver.

MAKING YOUR SKIN LOOK YOUNGER!




When it comes to basic skin care, there are tried-and-true ways to take care of your skin. Your skin could look much younger than it does.Before we start, you'll need to know your skin type. How you care for your skin is totally dependent on the type of skin you have: oily, normal/combination, dry, sensitive or sun- damaged. Choose a creamy cleanser if you have dry skin or a clear cleanser if you have oily skin.

Use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores,wash with a bit of cleanser, then rinse it off with cool or lukewarm water. You'll also want to take off your makeup with a proper makeup remover.

In the morning, a splash of lukewarm water is all you need (it's great for removing excess oils from your nightly moisturizing). Try not to wash your face with hot or cold water (both can cause broken capillaries). Also be careful about overcleansing your skin,to avoid excess oil and break outs.

THE ULTIMATE EYELASHES!



Oyinkan

Tola
AQUASCUTUM MODEL


My love for eyelashes continues and recently i saw this model on an AQUASCUTUM LONDON advert. I absolutely loved her eye makeup and looking closely i saw it was all about the lashes. the way it spiked and fanned out without looking too artificial, merging with her natural lash line. 

So my quest began... i searched high and low and did i find what i was looking for? YUP!!! i did... 
Eyelashes wefted on thread! Mink hair too (Natural hairs) so it doesnt prick and irritate. My excitement knows no bounds at the moment and i will glue away at all eyes, once ive been given the pass!!! Immediately i returned from my travels, i used it on Oyinkan... and Tola. 


These Lashes have thus been distributed within my team of makeup artists and i promise you wont even feel a thing (or have a wiper effect ) once they are on... and the best part is that Mascara can be applied as well or you can skip it.

MAKEUP FOR SPECIAL EVENTS


Tiwa Savage
Going for a red carpet event means you have to look glamourous,stylish,attractive,and even magical!
Select your shadow tones depending on the time of day of the big event. If it's an evening affair, make over your eyes with sexy, smoky colors. If it's for a daytime event, colors should be soft and natural. Begin by applying a light layer of shadow primer to your eyelids to ensure that your look lasts for the entire event.

GREAT MAKEUP STYLES


MAKEUP FOR NIGHTLIFE/PARTIES

We all want to look exceptionally good when going out or going to parties right? To help in achieving this,choose the most flattering shades and tools for a gorgeous look. Think big when it comes to emphasizing your best assets! Color has a great impact over a person's look, so try to be more adventurous with your makeup. Applying the eye makeup according to your eye shape and eye color is a must if you want to obtain a flattering effect which will make your eyes pop. To get a more professional look try to mix and match various colors, blending them together for a flawless and barely gradual transition. Don't be afraid of colors and have fun with makeup (But not too much fun). Get used to thin intensity of the makeup according to the occasion you want to go for as well as the time, so you can look appropriate at all times!

GREAT MAKEUP STYLES

    
Makeup is just the finishing touch to the beauty you already possess, so don’t fear or avoid it.
MAKEUP FOR EVERYDAY LIFE
Wearing make up everyday is not compulsory,it's a choice. The main aim is to enhance the way you look everyday. So if you choose to put on make up every day,make sure it's not heavy,it should be subtle.For us women, the right approach to wearing makeup to work could mean success. Now don’t get me wrong; i'm not suggesting a one inch layer of foundation caked on your face, i mean subtle yet classy makeup coupled with the way you carry yourself can potentially speak volumes about your personality, ambition and your disposition.
